To Kill a Mockingbird- Atticus Finch

Atticus Finch

“Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit them, but remember it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.”

In my English class we have just finished the book To Kill a Mockingbird, and it was a very interesting book to read. After we got done reading the book our teacher gave us a project to do with shoes that kind of goes along with this quote from Atticus Finch:

You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view, until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.”

Atticus Finch is the character that my teacher assigned to me to do the project with the shoes and it was a good project to get to understand a little bit more of my characters life.

“There’s a lot of ugly things in this world, son. I wish I could keep them all away from you. That’s never possible.”

Now I am going to tell you about the shoes that I picked for this character and why I did them the way that I did. I picked my Grandpa’s old shoes because the are dress shoes but not to dressy. I wanted them that way because AtticusFinch is
a lawyer so he needed dress shoes but he also walked to work everyday so they would be very worn. After I chose them I figured that I should write lawyer on the shoes because that is what he is. I also put that he is a father and a single one at that. I had also put a picture of a marksman medallion on the inner side of the shoe to show that he doesn’t really show that side of himself very often but when he does it’s full beast mode because he is a good shot. In the book we read that he had to kill a rabid dog in his neighborhood so no one got hurt. I also wrote Jem and Scout on the shoes too because those are his kids names and Atticus just like any other parent works everyday to make their kids succeed in life and do great things so I thought that would be important to put on there.

Overall this book was very interesting and it had very good life lessons and I was very happy to have such a great character to write about.
